'Dallas' finale postmortem: Producer, star talk about losing a Ewing

In Dallas‘ big season 3 finale, fans were forced to say goodbye to one member of the Ewing family. Specifically, they were forced to watch as Nicolas blew up Christopher’s car … with Christopher inside. But with one Ewing gone, there’s another on the horizon, because John Ross also discovered he has a sister. Needless to say, it was a gasp-worthy end to a season full of twists, turns, sketchy cartel members, and more.

Unfortunately, Jesse Metcalfe wasn’t able to hop on the phone, but the star did issue this statement about his departure from the series: “In classic Dallas fashion the producers and writers needed a season ending shocker. After three great years, I was ready to move on and pursue other projects. It culminated in the perfect opportunity to surprise fans and deliver that shocking twist. I enjoyed my time on Dallas and am grateful for the opportunity to work with Warner Bros and TNT, and I wish the cast and crew all the very best!”

As for executive producer Cynthia Cidre, we’ve got an exclusive interview where she talks about losing Christopher and what comes next for those who survived this finale.

'Dallas' boss on the finale: 'Some people survive, some people don't'

All of the promos for Dallas‘ season-three finale are teasing the same thing: One Ewing will die. So now, the question is: Who will it be? And how many other non-Ewings will also be included in the death count? Considering that when viewers left off, Bobby was in Mexico trying to save Ann and Emma, things aren’t looking good. With a highly dangerous cartel in the mix, there are no limits on tonight’s two-hour finale, which executive producer Cynthia Cidre promises will quite literally blow your mind.

EW chatted with Cidre about the finale. Here’s what you need to know going in.

There will be a definitive answer on Nicolas. All season, Nicolas has been toeing the line between being a good guy and being a bad guy. In the last episode, he came clean to Elena about all of his lies, but that’s not the end of his story. Cidre says the finale will provide the answer to the question, “Is he good or bad?” “You’re going to find out, for sure,” Cidre says. “You’re going to find out big time.” As for him and Elena? He still believes there’s hope. As Cidre put it, “He didn’t poke that diaphragm for nothing.”

The cartel will come to an end… sort of. Although the cartel storyline might extend into season four—which isn’t technically picked up, though Cidre is hopeful—some of the cartel guys will wrap up their stories. “You will definitely get an end,” Cidre said. “The characters you’ve come to know, whether it’s Luis or El Posalero, the guy with the braid, all of those people—you will have definition on them so that you know exactly where it all ends.”

Hour one is about a rescue mission. The first half of the finale will focus on saving Ann and Emma. “The basis of the first hour of the last two hours is the family making moves and trying to be heroic to rescue these two women,” Cidre said. However, a few people might have different ideas on just how to do that, and there’s nothing worse than one rescue mission messing up another.

Nobody will walk away unscathed. “There are so many people in actual physical jeopardy,” Cidre said. And leading into the finale: “The physical jeopardy continues; there’s some shooting; there are people hurt,” she continued. “Some people survive, some people don’t, and in the end, no one’s unscathed. Everybody’s taking a huge punch to the gut, and some recover better than others, and some are going to have to wait for season four to fully recover, to first express their anger and grief and hopefully grow from there and recover.”

The two-hour Dallas finale airs Monday night at 9 p.m. on TNT.
